Bill Gates on Reddit Talks Philanthropy, Steve Jobs and More - Mike Isaac - Social - AllThingsD

Excerpt from a Bill Gates "Ask Me Anything" session summary; full transcript
"Another user asked about the one Microsoft product that Gates wished had shipped but never made it to market. Gates cited WinFS, or Windows Future Storage, a “rich database as the client/cloud store that was part of a Windows release” at one point, he said, but ultimately it was too far “before its time.” (For the uninitiated: It would have been an interesting release for the data storage wonks in IT, not something consumer-facing.)"
